    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Patients with chronic airflow limitation have reduced exercise tolerance when walking due to breathlessness. Conventional treatment - for example, with β2 agonists or portable oxygen - leads to only modest improvement in exercise tolerance (roughly 10%). While walking is a relatively efficient means of propulsion, cycling is considerably better. We have investigated cycling in patients with severe chronic airflow limitation.
